Isaac Hooley admires the bravery and vulnerability that clients bring to therapy, and works hard to match that with his own courage and commitment. His professional interests include life-stage transitions and identity development, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, and navigating religion and spirituality concerns. Using a combination of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and a brief interpersonal process model, he sees the client and therapist relationship as a safe context in which to be curious about parts of our experience that are painful and uncomfortable. He is keenly aware that many identities experience systematic discrimination and oppression, and is open to exploring the ways these experiences impact his clients’ sense of self and safety.
Outside of the UHS, he can be found gardening, walking, writing bad poetry, and eating good food.
